I am WAY behind in all things cycling since my cardiac loop-de-loop in Feb. But I AM moving forward despite Coumadin jitters on the bike. Hoping to reclaim my cycling commute to work this month.

Cycling outdoors has been a challenge so far for May. I've dressed for the cold and been out three times in the past week, between rain/cold, etc. And I've had to use the recumbent exercise bike during bad weather. My hiking is off. But the good news is I've lost between 12 and 15 lbs. and am posting my nutrition regularly. Keeping to a better eating plan, riding, exercising and posting on Spark are my goals for May! emoticon

Ok, I am still playing catch up. I was doing so well with my bike riding and diet, then the second blackberry winter hit with cold, rain, hail, and generally icky weather. May isn't starting off well, but I am determined to maintain my weight loss. I set a goal of 2 pounds per month, and I am down 9 so far this year, so that part is going well. DD#2 is coming home from college and will live with us while she does her internship. I have 7 weeks to clean closets and make room for her things.

Now for May. I really, really, really gotta get back on the bike and get the closets cleaned.


One Day at a Time:
1) walk/ride 30 minutes
2) organize something in my home
3) fruit or veggie with each meal
4) sew 1 bobbin full
5) make someone smile

June goals
1) eat 2 fresh fruits daily
2) 1 meatless meal daily
3) finish repair on great grand mother's quilt
4) get hubby's quilt in the frame
